Costco sells packaged & assorted fruit trees for $16.99! Scroll down for photos. This is one of my favorite times of the year! Even though I don’t really have a green thumb, I love to garden. I’ve got a few avocado trees, lemon trees & apple trees in pots. They’re all doing well & survived 2020, but I just don’t have space on my property for them. Each year I want to buy a few more, but we really have nowhere to plant them. I even have a worm farm (vermiculture) compost bin in my backyard! Anyways, these fruit tree varieties are great! I think the price & quality is WAY better than that of Home Depot or Lowe’s. You may not find the variety you are looking for, but if you do, get it at Costco.

Packaged Fruit Trees, Assorted Varieties at Costco
Those were all the fruit trees I could find. I am located in Zone 10 with Zone 9 nearby. It makes sense that the fruit trees are limited to the zones within close proximity. I’d be curious to see the variety of fruit trees other Costco’s get. I’ll try to update the list as I see them. These are the new varieties for 2021. Make sure to pick up a bag of Miracle-Gro Organic Choice Potting Mix 50 Quart. It should be located right next to the fruit trees. Costco will start carrying all the gardening items soon, so make sure to buy an item if you like it. They disappear quickly. Here’s a few items I HIGHLY RECOMMEND (trust me, get the garden kneeler) to get from Amazon if you’re going to be planting some fruit trees. Check them out here……..

i looked all over your postings, but cant figure out where your “my costco’ is located so i can understand your postings better ! Making your location clear would make your assertions about the trees more understandable
which costco has rainier cherry? I am in bay area . I visited the one in mtv and sunnyvale , didn’t see it .
This post was from last year, but I’ll be doing an updated one on the trees Costco has available shortly. My Costco is starting to get all the fruit trees for spring time.
I got rainier cherry from Homedepot, the price is double of costco but at least one year older.
Thanks for the heads up. That will probably be important to some, but it’s hard to beat the Costco price. Did you end up planting the Cherry already? How’d it take?
How long do these bagged trees take to fruit? Interested in pomegranates.
It should be only 1 – 2 years depending on the rootstock and how old the tree is. This question would best be directed towards the nursery that provides Costco with the trees. I’m sure they’d be happy to answer this question
Costco has five foot nectarine trees in a pot live already blossoming for $35.99 is that a good deal?
I think that is a great deal Maria. If it’s already potted for you, you don’t have to do that yourself. You could obviously save yourself a few bucks by buying this packaged tree, but if you don’t already have a pot and soil, you may actually spend more than just buying the potted one. Let me know what you end up deciding.
No, that isn’t a good deal…it’s close to the price local nurseries charge. A good deal would be less than $20.
That’s good to know John. I’m sure some people would prefer to have theirs already potted, so maybe the extra $20 is worth it to them. I’ll check out my local nursery next time & do some price comparison. I just know that here in the Bay Area, some of the nurseries can get real expensive real quick
Can I use the mulch? The tree came in? It does have a slight odor
I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to use it. The smell shouldn’t be too strong though. If it is, it might be a good idea to give it some fresh soil. These bags have been sitting there for days, maybe weeks so I can understand if there is a slight smell to them upon opening. Which tree did you end up with? Did you plant it?
How long will these stay alive in a bag unwatered?
I would wait no more than a week to plant. I have purchased many trees online & in store at Costco & never really had an issue leaving them in the bag for a few days. You want to make sure the bag is damp & that you store it in a cold location. Leave it outside or in the garage away from the sun. This will help keep the tree dormant. How long did you plan on keeping it in the bag? I hope that helps.
Do these grow to big trees or dwarf tree? Let me know thanks!!
It depends on the tree. I think each tree has a height & width associated with them. If I remember correctly, they are NOT dwarf. They are either semi-dwarf or full grown. Depends on the rootstock of the original. You can always call the Nursery to confirm. I hope that helps.
Do these grow to like full size trees or are they dwarfs?
